This year, Mister Rogers would have been 86 years old. We will celebrate with a special story time at 11:00, on Saturday, March 22nd. Wear a sweater and join in song celebrating this famous children’s entertainer. Bring in an old sweater to donate and receive a raffle ticket that will give you a chance to win a gift card to buy a new sweater. The sweater collection will start on the first of March and continue throughout the month until the special story time celebrating Mister Rogers on March 22nd. This program requires an RSVP; so please call 724-658-6659, ext. 106 to put your name on the guest list.
The traditional Toddler Story Time has taken on a slight twist with the inclusion of some parts of the Family Place Workshop. It is now called Toddler Family Place. What makes it different are toys. The Children’s Story Room will be transformed into a Toyland. The toys are meant for children under 3, as is the program. Children have the opportunity to play with the toys and other children their age. The caregivers have an opportunity to play with their child and socialize with other parents, grandparents or babysitter. Clean-up is part of the program and all are to assist at putting the toys away. Once the toys are out of sight, a very short picture book is read, nursery rhymes are acted out, and songs are sung. It sounds like a lot but the program is complete in 1 hour. Due to limited amount of space interested parties should call to register at 724-658-6659, ext. 106. This program begins in October, on all Tuesdays, until the end of November.
